If each country builds up its own economy and industrial base
then surely the potential for world trade increases?
The industrialized countries such as the US, UK, Germany, Japan etc. were able to do so much trade between each other in the post-war era precisely because they were industrialized. If you take away the factories you take the real basis of the wealth IMO.
Each country should develop its own internal market and supplies just as America did to become the biggest capitalist marketplace in the world.
Taking a country's manufacturing base and moving it to another conutry just spreads the wealth more thinly around the globe IMO. Each country should develop its own internal market and then export any excess capacity. In that way all countries become as self-sufficient as possible and global trade increases as nations become more internally prosperous.
